    The NFL and roughing the quarterback rules

    Did anyone see the penalty they called on the Vikings against Aaron Rodgers last week? What has the NFL come to? You are basically not allowed to touch the quarterback in any way as a defensive player. Ridiculous. I have seen many many terrible roughing the quarterback calls this season in the NFL.

    This has been the year of ******** calls in football. Helmet to helmet, this, and now it looks like Interference calls could be headed that way... ouch

    Let's not forget about the phantom trip that cost the Vikings a touchdown (and the game as I see it) against the Steelers.

    Re: The NFL and roughing the quarterback rules

    I agree with the tossed around idea (at least in the media) that QBs should start wearing tutus during the game.

    Re: The NFL and roughing the quarterback rules

    There is nothing that irritates me more with sports than these calls. Or the phantom helmet-to-helmet calls. IT'S FOOTBALL PEOPLE!

    I understand and support the league's motive, I do not support the execution - it's gone way too far. How the **** can you flag a guy for taking a QB to the ground when the guy was in the motion of sacking him and had no idea the ball was out? I mean it wasn't even a full second after the throw that he got hit!

    I go back to the Vikings-Steelers game and the complete posterizing of Randall Gay by AP. AP lowered his head and created helmet-to-helmet contact with the defender. It's debateable whether Gay was defenseless, but that's more a humor thing than reality.

    However, that hit was far more vicious and intentional than the sack being discussed here. Or some of the other ones that have been flagged this season.

    I know it's highly unlikely for an offensive player, especially one carrying the football, to ever get flagged for unnecessary roughness. But when you look at those hits, the one delivered by AP was far worse than many others.

    Re: The NFL and roughing the quarterback rules

    You are so right, the helmet to helmet call is a complete joke. Linemen hit helmet to helmet on virtually every running play and when a fullback meets a linebacker in the hole on a run play it's helmet to helmet. It needs to be changed as do the phantom roughing the QB calls.
